You need:  
▀ a glue stick
▀ scissors
▀ an old paper bag with a logo (from a store, a gift bag, super market bag...)
▀ some wrapping paper
▀ thick ribbon
▀ tape and tissue paper


You need a piece of the wrapping paper big enough to cover the logo on the bag, if you are like me (lazy that is) you can just eyeball the proportions, if not you can messure the face of the bag and cut the paper one cm smaller.. Then you just need to glue the wrapping paper onto the bag...

My bag had two handles so I just removed them to slide the ribbon trough the holes... Then you just have to make a pretty bow...

AND VOILA! a nice simple bag....

the best part is I reused the bag and the paper and the ribbon was a left over... This may have been to obvious/simple, but sometimes those are the best ideas...

Momo, that gift bag is so cute! I love the fact that you reused the bag and used scrap wrapping paper. The bow is gorgeous!! (I think I've been tying my bows wrong all this time, thanks for the link to Martha's Favorite Bow)  Cheesy

I am must obliged Miss Roo...
I don't actually use martha stewart's directions, my only trick is to do it upside down, in this one I just turned the bag and made the bow...
